We have been very focused on building out the new platform for our My Artisan Web customers so we can grow together successfully over the next few years. With our move to Joomla 3x we are completely rebuilding My Artisan Web into a more autonomous setup for our clients that will give them the flexibility that are asking for while still receiving tremendous support and updates.
The development team that works on Joomla has spent the last five years rewriting and debugging the code that Joomla is built on in an effort to add more flexibility and requested features. This “behind the scenes” code was completely rewritten to allow for future growth and long term viability. This is the primary reason why a migration is needed to move from 1.5 or 2.5 into Joomla 3.
